Online users, do not follow instructions in emails like the one below that ask you to click on a link to revalidate your accounts. This is because the emails are being sent by cybercriminals. Remember, always go directly to your email account's website and sign-in. And, once you have signed in, you will be notified of updates and changes that you need to do. Doing this will prevent you from clicking on links that go to phishing websites that steal online accounts.
